A FINANCIAL FLURRY.
ONE HUNDRED PER CENT FOR
A Strlnurnr.v In the Nw York Market
Duo to Cntnotnco Utcr the Klretlon
Increnfeil Datnnnd for Cold nnil For
Irii KxchniiRO Talk, of Clearing
High Rates for Money.
Xr.w York, Oct. SO. Wall street to
day experienced an ante-election twist
In tho money market which precipi
tated lively selling of stocks nnd caused
a loss of most of tho advanco In prices
which has occurred during tho past
It lias been evident for several days
past that a good many people wero
taking steps to protect themselves
against tho effects of a free silver vic
tory if Hryan should win in tho elec
tion TueBday. This tendency showed it
self in several ways. Thero was an
increased demand for sterling bills
of London, a greater inquiry for
"calls" on gold and a growing demand
for gold to hoard. Hankers hnvo felt
this movement through a loss of de
posits, and they have been compelled
to withdraw more nnd more money
from the call loan market. For several
days call rates have ranged rather
high. To-day they wero bid up to CO
per cent, and later xp to 100 per cent.
There were no great amounts loaned at
the high rates, and comparatively llttlo
excitement was stirred up by the ad
vance, as it was in a measure antici
pated. There is more disposition now to
hedge against a possible free silver vic
tory than there has been at any timo
since last summer, when, ns a result of
tho transfer of funds from this country
to Europe, gold was going out In largo
amounta The action of the syndicate
of foreign bankers in attempting to
stem that movement, and the favor
able turn In the trade balance a llttlo
later, which brought largo sums of
gold to this country from Eu
rope, had tho effect of quieting peo
ple's fears, and since then, until this
week, there has not been much
uneasiness over the election. But the
feeling has broken out again In tho
last few days. Bunkers here antici
pated It and prepared for it as well as
tlicy could. But bankers everywhere
In the country did the same thing, and
the withdrawal of funds from here by
Interior banks has prevented any great
accumulation of cash here. It Is well
known that many banks hi interior
cities aro carrying a cash reserve of
fifty to seventy per cent of their de
posits. This sort of thing has kept tho
cash reserves here at a very low point
and compelled extraordinary conserva
tism on the part of New York banks.
The drain of monoy to tire country ha3
been so great that practically all of tho
800,000,000 which nave come from Eu
rope have gone into the interior. Much
of tho gold itself went into the treas
ury, but the currency obtained in ex
change went west and south.
The nominal broker's premium on
gold to-day was H per cent. A
number of reputable firms are selling
"calls" on gold, good thirty to ninety
days, at X per cent premium.
There was a good deal of talk on the
street about a probable issue of clear
ing house certificates, but it does not
come from an authoritative source.
Kama Stato Normal School Fainted
MltchlcTout Young Men.
Em r oki A, Kan., Oct. 30. Every stom

stops, even the famous Kansas AVorld't
Fair fountain, which sets in the campui
of tho Kansas State Normal school
early yesterday morning wero dis
covered to be decorated in two or three
shades of paint.
Most of the decorations consisted o)
such phrases: "Hurrah for Bryan,"
"10, 2, 1," "McKinley's not In It."
A very well executed picture of a
donkey, labeled "Mclvinley," occupied
the entire walk in front of the malr.
entrance. Who the artist, or artlsU
were, Is a mystery.
Tho Bryan club boys say the McKin
ley boys did It in order to put the
former in an embarrassing position.
II. L. Miller, president of tho Bryan
club, called a meeting of his club, nnd
had some resolutions passed denounc
ing tho act of vandalism and pledging
tho aid of the society to discover the

Tliu Prince Warned Not to Dlscloia
"Why Ho Wan DlimtMcd.
London, Oct. 30. A special dispatch
from Berlin says that It Is understood
there that tho proposed prosecution of
Prince Bismarck's organ, tho Ham
burger Is'achrlchten, for publishing
state secrets, has been abandoned out
of fear of tho harm such a step might
do to Germany's foreign, policy. Should
Frineo Bismarck, howovcr, publish tho
circumstances under whloh ho resigned
oftlco, the government will, tt Is de
clared, bo forced to act, and It Is said
will probably treat IMnco Bismarck In
the sarao manner that tho latter
treated Count von Arntm.
Count von Arnlm was arrested in
October, 1874. and confined in Berlin
for refusing to glvo up docu
ments sent to him ns ambassador.
On account of Illness ho was re
leased on ball sorao threo weeks
later, but was again nrrcsted, tried in
December, 1874, convicted of making
way with ecclcsio-pollticnl documents,
acquitted of other charges, and sen
tenced to threo months' imprisonment.
He appealed, was tried again in June,
1875, and a verdict was rendered con
firming tho sentence. In November of
tho same year it was rumored that ho
was to bo prosecuted for treason in a
pamphlet entitled 'Tro Nlhllo," .pub
lished at Zurich in Jnnuary, 1800. In
May, 1881, he died at Nice, as a result,
it was said by Prince Bismarck's ene
mies, of the persecution to which ho
had been subjected by the chancellor.

Thomas Gahan, chairman of tho
Democratic county committee, received
the following letter from Mr. Bryan
regarding the matter:
"Dear Mr. Gnhun: I wish you would

Late In the afternoon tho chief of

two young prisoners, ns after Mr.
Bryan had written his letter asking
for their release, it was evident that

Before the prisoners had been re

of the middle-of-the-road Populists

A Mltsonrt llutoliery.
Richmond, Mo., Oct 20. The most
horrible and brutal crime ever com
mitted in Roy county came to light yes
terday, when the dead bodies of Mrs.
Jesso Winner and her two small chil
dren wero found at their home, on tho
Wntkins place, six miles northeast o
this city. Tho victims arc:
Mrs. Kva Winner, aged 20.
Clara Winner, girl, nged 2.
l'earlc Winner, boy, aged 18. months.
Mrs. Winner's body was found just
outside of tho houso, with the skull
terribly crushed, nnd tho bodies of tho
two children in a corner of tho ono
room of the house. Tho children's
throats wero cut. Tho murderer or
murderers arc not known, but tho lius
bnnd and father Is In jail pending an
The triple murder took place somo
time between 11 o'clock Monday night
nnd t o'clock yesterday morning. The
Winner homo is about half a mile back
from tho county roud, and was occu
pied by Jcsso Winner tmd Ills family,
which has consisted of his wife and
three children. Mr. Winner was not
nt homo Monday night, his wife and
children being the only ones on tho
place. Somo timo during the night
somo unknown person or persons
gained admittance to the house and
before leaving blotted out threo lives.
From tho nppearanco of the interior
of the house it Is evident that a ficrco
fight was waged by the mother in de
fense of herself und her little ones.
Everything was in disorder and a
broken chain, besmeared with blood,
tells tho talc of Mrs. Winner's resist
ance, for tho blood was hers, and it
was shed In bnttllng with tho mur
derer. It is plain that before sho re
ceived her death blow she managed to
escape from tho houso and was fleeing
across tho yard, when sho was over
taken und felled with a fence rail.
The blow crushed her skull, but to
make sure work the murderer split the
woman's head with an ax, the blade
burying itself to the victim's eyes.
After killing Mrs. Winner tho brute
returned to tho house and killed two of
tho children, one a girl aged 3 years,
named Clara, and tho other n boy, 18
months old, named Pearlc, by cutting
their throats with a knife. Tho mur
derer not only cut tho jugular veins,
but severed .the spinal cords of tho
babies. The third child, which is deaf
nnd dumb, escaped without injury.
Before tho crime was discovered,
hogs found the body of Mrs. Winner
and had eaten all the flesh oil her
head, leaving nothing but the skull
with two gaping holes in it.
When tho husband and father was
informed of tho murder of his family
he appeared wholly unconcerned,
which seemed to create strong sus
picion against him. Winner is a coal
miner. Ho claims to hnvo been in
Richmond when tho crime was com
mitted. The Winners came hero about five
years ago, coming from Tipton, Pauld
ing county, Ohio, where his wife
resided. Both were well connected,
she having two brothers back In Ohio
who are considered very wealthy.
There is strong talk of lynching, if
the crime Is fastened upon anyone.
